Internet Enabled-Radio in Mali

Ethan Zuckerman’s Weblog : Ethan’s Weblog – My blog is in Cambridge, but my heart’s in Accra

A description of a project in Mali linking community radio broadcasters with an internet connection that would allow them to expand the scope of their news offerings include regional, national and international offerings. During a presenatation by Promethues Radio in Lowell, MA (which is very far from receiving a low-power FM frequency and not like these countries in Mali) we discussed coupling legal extremely low watt fequenceis (10-100 watts) with high-speed internet access to link a number of very, very local (neighborhood / housing) entities into a city-wide radio station that is also streamed on the Internet. It will take some time to see if we could put such a system in place.
